Tanzania’s Northern Safari Circuit has its most renowned parks including Lake Manyara, Tarangeri, Ngorongoro, Lake Eyasi, Serengeti and Lake Ndutu as well as the Rift Valley’s Great Escarpment.
Lake Ndutu is a seasonal soda lake in the Serengeti eco system, en route to Serengeti National Park. It is has beautiful forests and contrasting plains. It is famously known as part of the main wildebeest migratory route as well as being home to healthy herds of habitual herbivores as well as lions, cheetah and leopard. In addition to the famous Ndutu Lodge, the area is very popular for camping. Lake Eyasi is also a soda lake famously known as the home of the Hadzabe Bushmen; the only true bushmen tribe outside of the Kalahari desert. They speak with a very distinctive ‘click’ language characteristic of the Bushmen people alone. The lake is a homing zone for a multitude of birds and a popular region with visitors wishing to add a unique cultural experience to their safari.
Arusha is the ‘Hub’ of the Northern Circuit, where all safaris into the region begin or end, and it was recently awarded ‘City’ status. It has a good assortment of shops and several malls, with a large selection of hotels catering to the international market, both visiting on holiday or for business. Arusha is an hours drive from the Tanzania/Kenya border of Namanga and it is also serviced by ‘Kilimanjaro International Airport,’ and Arusha Domestic Airport.
